Feb. 10, 2009: Lennox International's Allied Air Enterprises Subsidiary to Consolidate Operations
“In this challenging market environment, consolidating our Blackville factory operations into Orangeburg and Saltillo is necessary to further improve our operating efficiency, eliminate redundant fixed costs, and provide our customers with improved service,” said Doug Young, president and COO, LII Residential.
“This decision is not based on the performance of our Blackville workforce, but on the challenging market conditions,” said Dan Seaman, vice president and general manager, Allied Air Enterprises. “We are committed to treating our employees fairly and equitably throughout this process, and we will work with them to help ease the transition.”
Allied Air Enterprises manufactures and markets the Armstrong Air, Ducane, AirEase, Magic-Pak®, and Concord brands of air conditioning and heating equipment.
